So this is just a collection of various random thoughts and links that you might enjoy. If you want to shoot the breeze with other bloggers, then head on over to www.ClassicalHousewife.com and join in the fun.
*I am a BBC/Masterpiece Theatre fanatic. I enjoy almost all of them, with a few exceptions. I can't say that I liked Tess of the D'Urbervilles, but it was very well made. I just didn't enjoy the storyline (I hated the book too). I'm a happy ending kind of a girl. So, I was very pleased when this new movie came out on DVD. Little Dorritt is WONDERFUL. I've never read the book by Charles Dickens, but I added it to my reading list for this year, because it looks so good. And it has a happy ending. Watch it!
*The Lattice House. Every day, we pass "The Lattice House" (as we have nicknamed it) at least a couple of times and every time we pass it, it puts a smile on my face. The kids never tire of pointing it out. The house is COMPLETELY covered in lattice and has a matching lattice fence. It just cracks me up. I'm not sure if it was on sale, or if the man works in a lattice factory or what. It is very interesting though. :)
*What do you guys drive? I'm in a 2003 Ford Expedition. It's paid off, thankfully. I don't particularly want a car payment again, but I can't help salivating over those huge 15 passenger vans. They have so much room!! 5 kids and the double stroller and our truck is pushing capacity. We could actually fit groceries and stuff if we had a larger vehicle. I can't justify the price though. What we have works and has enough seat belts in it, so I will have to live with it for now.... I can dream though.
